5 mins with Tailor Founder Sara
What was the first step you took to start your business?
What was your greatest fear when launching Tailor Skincare into the market? Does this fear still exist?
How do you prime yourself in the morning to set you up for a productive day?
In an ideal world, I would start with a 6.30 Power Living vinyasa class (which does happen 2-3 times per week). But sometime I can't make it to class and I love my morning coffee routine of walking Loui (my Mini Schnauzer, best friend, and psychologist) along Lyall Bay Beach to the Spruce Goose, grabbing a coffee and walking back to Tailor HQ before I start my day. I always make a point of manifesting gratitude when I do this because it's a pretty special routine and I'm pretty lucky to have the opportunity to do this in the morning.
What are some of your non-negotiables that you do every day?
My other non-negotiable is my skincare routine. I really love my products and really enjoy taking the time each day to give myself a mini facial at home (sometimes elaborate and sometimes simple but it's non-negotiable).
After a stressful day, what is your best advice for unwinding?
I also love to float and try to go to Float Well NZ at least once a month. For those who haven't tried it before I highly recommend trying it. Floating helps me to block out the world and allow myself space to just BE. There's nowhere to go, nothing to be done and I can just allow myself to calm down.
Tell us something about yourself you don’t think most people know?
What / who makes you laugh?
What is the best piece of advice ever given to you (and by whom were you given this advice?)
If you're pushing up against what feels like a brick wall and making zero progress perhaps you're missing a piece of the puzzle. Sometimes it's important to stop, take a helicopter view and wait for that piece of the puzzle to fall into place rather than paddling against the current. This advice was from my Father. To further explain, I'm not afraid of hard work but am also very aware of working in flow with the universe. If you're being met with a tonne of resistance perhaps there's a different way to go about doing things to achieve the same result.
